Nathaniel Richmond

Nathaniel Richmond, landscape gardener, was baptised on the 8th December 1732 at Christ Church, Spitalfields, London. In 1754 he began working with Lancelot 'Capability' Brown and it is likely that he worked on Moor Park, Rickmansworth, supervising works for Brown until 1759. Richmond was responsible for a number of landscape commissions including Marden Park, Surrey (1759); Himley Hall, Dudley (1765); as well as pleasure grounds at Hasells Hall, Hertfordshire (1766-8); Lamer, Hertfordshire (1782-4); and he prepared designs for greenhouses at Audley End, Essex (1769). It has been argued that it was within his designs for pleasure grounds that Richmond most influenced Humphry Repton and others. Richmond was buried at St Marylebone on the 28th February 1784.
